Musicians became cable experts...

Back in 1999 we, Rainer Blanck and Friedhelm Sommer, founded the Sommer cable GmbH – together with some confidants being tinkerers around the cable specialist Pascal Miguet, thoroughbred musicians, sound people, electronic engineers and event specialists.

We didn’t feel as a start-up – although we were precisely this – driven by the question: how do we manage to design cables and connectors so that their sound quality and handling thrill the users in every respect?

So we became known for high-quality bulkware cables, developed for the most varied applications, standards and requirements and supplemented by matching connectors, connection cables, signal distribution systems or electronic components.

Today we are one of the leading cable manufacturers and offer a uniform, professional full assortment for the audio, video, multimedia, broadcast, and hi-fi sectors. Besides top-notch quality, great reliability and exceptional diversity, it is important to us to recognize trends early and develop future-proof solutions, maintain vibrant relationships and implement individual wishes.

The foundation of our solutions competence lies in our attitude: the passion for what we do.

It is found in every employee and thus in every facet of SOMMER CABLE. How we do it? By forming a team together with our employees and our customers. We make the talents of our staff the talents of our company and the demands of our customers our own. This is exactly what makes the difference in the industry these days.

With this personality, our close customer relationship and qualified consulting, SOMMER CABLE  fascinates customers from the entire pro-audio sector: architects and designers, studio, media and event technicians – and, of course, musicians. Simply everybody who shares our passion.

We stand for connections that inspire. “Simply good vibes“.
